A suite of prints by Stephanie Copoulos-Selle has been added to Quad Graphics' extensive art collection. Comprised of 15 woodcuts plus a title page and colophon, The Guardians of Hours had been exhibited in a spring show at Quad Graphics in Sussex, was purchased for the permanent collection, and now is displayed at Quad's Lomira, WI, facility. Guardians depicts 12 stages of human life.
Another of Copoulos-Selle's works, an artist's book titled Lydia's New Rules of Order, was exhibited last spring at a show at Lawrence University, Appleton, and bought in September by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Golda Meir Library for display in its Special Collections department. Printed on top of old copies ofRoberts Rules of Order, this work provides a new structure to live by, Copoulos-Selle explains.
Copoulos-Selle has taught in the UW System since 1971 and at UW-Waukesha since 1976. Recently, she has devoted most of her talents to the creation of artist books. Her work was included in The Remarkable Women Show this fall at the Peltz Gallery in Milwaukee and earlier this year in a traveling exhibit, State of the Book: Artists' Books in Wisconsin, that was displayed at UW-Oshkosh, UW-Parkside, UW-Milwaukee, and Walker's Point Center of the Arts
